It appears “Cheers” actor John Ratzenberger may have a solution for the United States Postal Service (USPS) funding crisis.

Over the last few weeks, some residents across the U.S. have voiced their outrage after President Trump stated that he was against providing funding for the USPS as part of a new stimulus deal in an effort to stop mail-in voting for the upcoming presidential election.

In response, Ratzenberger has tapped into his mailman alter ego, Cliff Clavin, to offer Americans a solution. On Sunday, the actor, who appeared on the sitcom from 1982-1993, appeared in a Cameo video in which he suggested Americans revise their holiday shopping plans to help fund the postal service.

“So I had an idea: Why not do all your Christmas shopping early at the Post Office store?” Ratzenberger, 73, suggested.

He added, “Why not translate the dollar amount you’re gonna pay for Aunt Tilly’s new hat and just buy her that amount of stamps?”

Ratzenberger claimed that the postal-themed gift would be more convenient than purchasing a present from a store and shipping it to a relative. “Easy to carry, easy to mail, easy to ship — and it’s worth something and it’ll be worth something for a long time,” he said.

“And how many times is Aunt Tilly gonna be wearing that hat? Once, twice? But, how many times will be she using those stamps? That’s right, always thinking. So help your local post office; go down there and buy something.”

Amid negotiations for the new stimulus deal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has requested that the House vote on the Delivering for America Act, which would stop the Postal Service from implementing changes to the operations or level of service it had in place on Jan. 1, later this week.
